Cave Stream

Entrance to the Cave

Entrance to the Cave

After a morning of climbing, the weather started to turn.  The clouds, wind, and chilly air forced Dan and I to forgo climbing in the afternoon.  As an alternative we heard of a cave that we could spelunk (spelunk – explore natural caves) in the area near where we had climbed the first day.

Even though it was quite brisk out we drove to the area, threw on wetsuits, grabbed our headlamps and a torch, and I got both my water video camera, and my still photography camera in the water case all set up.  We set out for an hour crawl through a limestone cave with a rushing stream running through it.

The water was cold, and the entire walk was really spooky.  We knew we where under millions of tons of rock, walking threw a carved cave with water that could flash flood without warning. When we turned out the lights inside, it was darker than dark.  You could see nothing, not even your hand in front of your face.  We of course where fine, and made it threw without incidence.  The pics are pretty cool!
